The Gospel of John Volume 2: Christ and Judaism (John 5-8) (Expositional Commentary)by James Montgomery Boice
Synopses & Reviews
The Boice Commentary series combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section by section reading of various biblical texts. Combining thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live. Whether used for devotions, preaching, or teaching, this authoritative and thought-provoking series will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons.
The Gospel of John, says Boice, is a powerful source of instruction and comfort to many millions of God's people down through the ages of church history. This second volume in the Gospel of John collection deals with the hostility toward Jesus that began to arise among the religious leaders after he came into this world.
"If we allow God to use us, we become important spiritually," says James Montgomery Boice. "For the Lord Jesus Christ himself is seen in the conduct of his followers." This second volume on the Gospel of John shows how Jesus dealt with the hostility that began to arise among the religious leaders in regard to various practices of faith and how he didn't allow their hostility to deter him from his path. In so doing, Christ provided the ultimate example for living in the Father's name. Other topics discussed include "Is God Silent?" (5:17-23) "A Matter of Life or Death" (5:28-30) "Who's in Charge?" (6:10-15) "Murmurs of Disbelief" (6:41-47) "None like Jesus" (7:45-52) "The Last Enemy" (8:51) This expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most popular books combines careful scholarship and clear communication in a verse-by-verse and section-by-section reading of the biblical text. Integrating thoughtful interpretation with contemporary insight for daily living, James Montgomery Boice explains the meaning of the text and relates the text's concerns to the church, Christianity, and the world in which we live. James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour, on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years.
